Towns are abundant in the land of gooncraft.
Some towns are inhabited by locals or "villagers" that enjoy trade with outsiders. Strike it lucky and some will offer rare gems or materials for cheap.
Towns are not usually very fortified as they are constantly expanding or moving, so they are generally small or scattered. The biggest towns in gooncraft's history were eliminated by the undead forces, but are making a comeback.
Make peace with villagers and have great trade, or take over their land and claim it as your own. The decision is yours to make.
